A delicious Baileys bread & butter pudding that’s perfect for the festive season – Baileys, brioche, chocolate, raisins and more!
Bread and butter pudding
Oh hey bread and butter pudding.. it’s been a while! To be fair, it’s only been on my blog once so far, and in hot cross bun form, so this is probably more of a classic. Just with an alcoholic kick of Baileys!
So! This is a luxurious and delicious pudding that is guaranteed to satisfy your delicious and alcoholic puddings of dreams, that is ideal for the colder winter months of the year.
Baileys bread and butter pudding
I decided a while ago that I wanted to post a bread & butter pudding for winter this year, but as it was getting closer and closer to Christmas, and I got a little carried away with buying some Baileys when it was on offer, I thought I would combine the two!
This is probably more towards a classic bread and butter pudding then I have ever made before, as I always love my twists with recipes, but it is still quite classically Jane with a few added extras. Baileys, brioche, chocolate and more.
So, in my opinion, a classic bread and butter pudding uses bog standard bread, butter and then eggs, cream/milk and raisins with some sugar. This may be different to your classic version, but that’s what I imagine!
For this beauty, I decided to make it more luxurious and use brioche. Brioche is still bread, but its a more indulgent version, with a sweeter and more delicious taste. Basically, the perfect bread for a pudding like this!
For the custard mixture, I would normally use eggs, cream, milk and a touch of sugar, and this is no different… but this time, I’ve added Baileys. An equal mix of cream, milk and Baileys makes a delightful concoction, and then an even better custard with the eggs and sugar.
Raisins and chocolate chips
As I mentioned earlier, I always think that bread and butter pudding classically involves raisins or similar, and I have done no different here. However… as I know a lot of my readers are not the biggest raisin fans, so I went for half raisin, half chocolate chip. You can use all raisins, or all chocolate chips – it’s up to you!
Prep, make then bake!
I prep my Baileys bread & butter pudding by slicing and lightly buttering my bread, and swirling it into my dish. I sprinkle over my raisins and chocolate chips. Then, I whisk together my eggs, cream, milk, baileys and sugar and pour it over.
I finish it off with a sprinkle of light brown sugar to get some caramelising in the oven, but this is optional! And then, I let it sit in the fridge for 30 minutes or so to really soak up the baileys custard goodness whilst the oven heats up, and then I bake!
This beauty really is best served warm, and on the day of making, but it can be reheated easily once. An extra drizzle of cream, some custard, or a small drink of baileys on the side… it’s up to you! ENJOY!!!
Baileys Bread & Butter Pudding!
- 400 g brioche loaf
- unsalted butter
- 75 g raisins
- 75 g chocolate chips
- 4 medium eggs
- 200 ml double cream
- 200 ml whole milk
- 200 ml Baileys
- 50 g caster sugar
- 50 g light brown sugar
- Start by prepping your ingredients. I slice my bread into 2cm thick slices, and then also in half to get them to be shorter!
- Spread a small amount of unsalted butter onto each piece of bread, and then put the bread into your dish.
- Sprinkle on your raisins and chocolate chips!
- In a jug, whisk together your eggs, cream, milk, baileys and sugar!
- Pour over the bread evenly.
- Sit the pudding in your fridge whilst your oven heats up - for 20-30 minutes!
- Preheat your oven to 180C/160C Fan.
- Sprinkle over the brown sugar, and bake in the oven forr 35-40 minutes, or until baked. You want it to be nice and golden on top, and perfectly stodgy.
- For this recipe I did my shopping at Sainsburys by chance - I bought the brioche loaf, and so on from there!
- I used the original baileys, but you can use any flavour you fancy!
- You can use all raisins, or all chocolate chips.
- This is best served on the day of baking when it's fresh, but can easily be reheated once!
- Serve with cream, ice cream, custard or more!
